We have been developing technology for NEC’s Radio Access Network since the earliest days of 3G UMTS and our output has found its way into many operators’ networks in Japan and around the world. Our technical teams have a wealth of mobile network knowledge and experience and several NEC Telecom MODUS staff members represent NEC on international standards bodies and industry forums.
A vacancy has arisen for the role of the 3GPP RAN WG2 Standardization delegate, to attend 3GPP RAN WG 2 meetings and contribute to the standardization of NEC’s LTE Advanced and 5G solutions.

1. Develop LTE Advanced and 5G feature concepts for NEC’s RAN (Radio Access Network) solutions
2. Prepare internal technical investigation reports and presentations
3. Prepare 3GPP meeting contribution documents
4. Attend as required 3GPP RAN WG2 (and occasionally other WGs) and present own and other NEC contributions
5. Analyse and report on the contributions submitted by other delegates into RAN WG2 (and other WGs as required)
6. Prepare 3GPP meeting reports and de-brief NEC internal teams
7. Follow developments in other 3GPP WG

The ideal candidates will bring to the team deep knowledge of LTE Advanced systems specifications as well as a background in UMTS or other radio or wired network telecoms technology. The role will involve representing NEC Telecom MODUS and as such a common sense and logical approach to problem resolution is required. The role requires the ability to think creatively and clearly about problems, generating and presenting possible solutions for review. We are looking for motivated persons who are able to work pro-actively and with determination under minimum supervision, prioritising between tasks and managing their own time.
